This is a great hike for beginners of for folks who want to take the trails at a comfortable pace - - just because. The trails are not too long, and definitely not too strenuous. For experienced hikers, it's a nice way to stretch your legs after a strenuous weekend of hiking.
We'll start in the official CNRA area, but venture along a path that leads to the Morgan Falls Dam. Along the way, we'll cross a couple of big, short pipes. Most folks can easily handle these, but an option is simply to descend a few feet into the creek bed to cross.
We haven't been to Johnson Ferry North in a great while, so we're not sure what shape the trails are in. Be prepared for adventure!
There ARE bathrooms at this location . . . always a nice amenity. But there's also that $3 parking fee, since this is one of the CNRA units. Your pass will work if you have one.
|How to Get There:|
The parking lot is on Johnson Ferry Road - - across from Columns Drive.
From I-285 East
